Soft and sweet




steady showers--just


me and falling pink lanterns


from golden rain trees

Been gone a few days. Had a lovely, rain walk.

That picture looks like Heaven to me.

Stephanie Thornton said...

I'm beyond jealous of that lovely scenery. The leaves are on the ground here and it feels like snow.

Time to hibernate!

Suzanne Casamento said...

Wasn't the rain awesome?! What a treat! I was actually kind of bummed when the sun came out late afternoon.

Is that weird?

Wen Baragrey said...

Oh, so pretty!

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Why, hi, Charlie! Haven't seen you around in awhile. It felt a bit like heaven. :)

Stephanie: I have trouble imagining the kind of winter you experience. Long ago, I lived in a very cold place with snowy, icy months that stretched on, but they were a notch down from yours. Still, there is a breathtaking awe in that sort of cold. I wish you both the awe and lots of warm, hibernating places!

Suzanne: Ha! No, not weird. We have the luxury of love, love, loving rain (except for freeway commutes)

Wen: I got soaked through even with coat and umbrella, but I didn't care. It truly was gorgeous to walk there.

I love walking in the rain. :) It's so peaceful.

Bish Denham said...

I would LOVE to be walking in the rain right now! Beautiful photo!

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

GoldenEagle: Me, too. I even have a great raincoat that can batten-down-the-hatches with extra button thingies. I have to remember to dig that out for the season, so I can wander and wander.

Bish: I wish you were here and we could've walked together. :)

Lovely. Wish I had someplace nearby as nice to stroll through.

Jemi Fraser said...

I love a good walk in the rain - such a great feeling! :)

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Kathryn: I wish you did, too! I think that's one of my musts wherever I live that there is a nice walking spot nearby. In the case of this park it was near my mother's.

Jemi: Isn't it wonderful? Excites the senses, I think.

Marcia said...

I love the pictures you use on your blog. This is another great one.

Angela Ackerman said...

What a beautiful shot--makes me want to head out into the rain with my camera, too!

Marcia: All smiles to hear that. :D

Angela: I hope you do! And wouldn't it be fun if we could go together?

Donna said...

Lovely, lovely ...

Medeia Sharif said...

Your haiku is lovely.

Great pic. It's been raining where I am, but it's not a pretty sight.

For me it's been:

showers with filtered sun on trees

forest needles and sprinkled wetness

october gateway to fall yellow-orange

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Donna: It was lovely, lovely. :)

Medeia: Thank you, but I'm laughing at your 'not a pretty sight.' I can see it.

Lee: Ah, it sounds like you are having lovely walks, too. :)

Karen Amanda Hooper said...

Lovely as always.

It's been monsoon type weather here all weekend. Def can't take a rain walk, but it is fascinating to watch from the comfort of my couch while drinking caramel coffee. :)

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Karen: Don't blow away! It sounds kind of nice to sit inside with coffee while the wind howls. ;)

Elizabeth said...

Love your picture. So peaceful.

NEW FOLLOWER.
